MCGIRK & G'BRIAN BUREAU FOR PROTECTION OF AMERICAN COMMERCE Everybody is interested in the dev elopment of export trade. Tho cor ner grocer who never expects to sell a nickel's worth of goods in China is interested. The preacher, ,the lawyer, the doctor, in fact, every person in every profession or busi ness, is interested, becauso all will profit. When a dollar comes to the Uni ted States from another country, it Hows into coiuiiitjice und helps ev erybody. But, says a statement just issued by tho Associated Advertising Clubs of the World, immediate action must bo taken for the protection of trade across the seas. This Association is organizing a 'bureau for the protec tion of the reputation of American firms and American goods 5n other countries, tho chief business of which will bo to stamp fraud out of tho advertising of American firms, which try to 'put something over" in foreign fields. "Experience has shown," says Merle Sidener, chairman of the Na - tionnl Vigilance Committee of the advertising clubs, "that tho man in a foreign country who buys our goods docs no"t have even as good a chance to discriminate ns people in this country, for, without knowledge of the standing of tho firms, one nd ndvertisement looks very much like another.

In reply to nn inquiry from tho Sennto Banking Committee, asking if it was advisable to attempt con traction of curency by legislation in the" hppb of reducing prices, Gov ernor Harding wrote Chairman Mc lean that tho growth in the volume of circulating notes was the effect and not tho cause of advancing wag. cs and prices and that tho war period of finance would not be over until government obligations, now carried by tho banks, were absorbed through the actual savings of the people. Strong censure of strikes and ex travagance was implied in Mr. Hard ing's letter, which did not, however, undertake to blame any on6 section of the population, but referred to the nation ns a whole, especially to tho Relaxation, of economics practiced during the war 'and tho purchase, now" of non-essential articles by per sons enjoying large incomes for the first time. "The Federal 'Reserve Board be lieve that any currency legislation at this.timo is unnecessary and un desirable," Mr. Harding wrote, "and would suggest that whether viewed from nn economic or finnncinl stand point, tho remedy for the present situation is the same, namely, to work and to save; to work regulnrly ind efficiently, in order to produce incl distributo tho largest possible volumo of commodities; and to ex ercise reasonable economics in or ler that money, goods and service may be devoted primarily to the Souidntion of debt and to the sat isfaction of the demand for neces sities, rather than to indulge in ex travagances or the gratification of i desire for luxuries. "The wnr is over in a military ensc and while tho bills hnvo been ettlcd by loans to the government, Miese obligations, so far as thoy aro arripd bv tho banks, must be ab- orbed before tho war chapter of the finnncinl history of tho country .can e closed." Money in circulation actually has ihown a decline sinco tho post-wnr period set in, Mr. Harding snid. Tho totnl on December 1, 1918, was $5,120,085,000, a per capita circula tion of $48.13,which was reduced to $4,790,890,000 and $45.10 on the first of this month. The figures on-i nril 1, 1917, were $4,100,970,000 L and $37.38. In considering the increased cir culation, the committco was told, there should be considered the fac tors demanding more currency, such as the enlargement of pay rolls as to the number of workers and the wages paid, the effect on propcr- 'ity on the amount of money earned by individuals, the increased amounts locked ;up by "highly paid workmen ignorant of banking meth ods, monev carried out of the coun try by alien's returning to Europe, and prosperity in tho Phillippines, ITawnii, Cuba and cortain Central American countries whero United States money circulates freely, For eign circulation of United States currency was estimated at $150,000, 000. "Rat-Snap Beats the Best Trap Ever Made," Mrs. Etnily Shaw Says. "My husband bought $2 trap. I bought a 50o box of RAT-SNAP. Tho trap only cnught 3 rats but RAT-SNAP killed 12 in 'a week.

In a telegram to nil state food administrators who worked with .Ad ministrator Hoover during tho war ho Attorney General requested the ippointmcnt of a fair price com mittee in each county to investigate what is being charged for retail no-" necessities and if in excess of what tho committee considers just, to pub lish a list of fair prices for tho guid ance of the public. This is the 'extra legal" means of "caching profiteering which Mr. Pnl ner recently indicted was under con sideration. Ho has frankly ndmitted from the start thai there was no means to prosecute directly a man nUty of extortion in prices. Re tailers who aro gouging tho nltimnto consumer will have to be disciplined v public sentiment, which official have no doubt is sufficiently alert to fhc situation now to act vigorously in clear-cut cases. Hoarders, on the other hand, can be reached through the war-timo food laws or tho Fish erman Act, and Mri Palmer request ed the State Food Administrator to transmit to hjm any evidonco of warding or other violations of thr uv which thoy might encounter V 'heir work, with tho promise tbnt the government's law enforcement ran- hincry would act promptly. "There is a pressing necessity for the restorn t;')!i f not-mat condi tions," Mr. Palmer's telegram said, equesting- tho men who did such cf- ectivc work during, tho war to take up the burden again. They were ask ed to seno without compensation, the Attorney General believing that the public service to bo performed now s ns important ns when tho country was engaged in hostilities', and that no patriotic citizen would refuse the call to duty.
